    There is no software update that adds CarPlay to a 2018 Prime. You would either need to trade up to a newer model (2020+) or install a 3rd party device to add CarPlay to that car.

    You can get newer maps for the navigation system, that's usually just a quick call to your local dealer's parts counter.

    Leadfoot is 100% correct, theres no software to get carplay if you don't already have it, the MFD hardware in 2020+ models is a bit different. Best bet, though costly, is to upgrade to a 2020+ MFD. Other option is a kit from "NAVIKS" though from videos it seems a bit clunky.
